I decided to head over to Matthei Botanical Gardens today. Their agave plant is blooming now. Besides, it felt like a good laid back thing to do after yesterday. Again, I make no claims of knowledge about the flowers.
These flowers kind of remind me of fireworks.
I think this one is some kind of orchid.
I kind of wish I could capture the shade of blue on this one. This one looks appropriate for Michigan, I think.
These flowers were attached to a pitcher plant of some sort.
This is the agave plant. I think the blooms are at the edges here. This plant blossoms after 100 years.
The wollemi pine comes from Australia and is believed to be related to a plant that is over 200 million years old. This gives it the classification of living fossil.
A bonsai tree.
Another bonsai tree. This one almost looks like it could be put into a model train display.
One of many cacti there.
I really like the looks of this one. Looks like it could attack you.
This one is pretty cool too.
Some sort of palm tree.
I believe these were called Egyptian star flowers. I kind of liked the way the water was beaded on these.
